The Tragedy of Carmen

Vivid and passionate! This 90-minute chamber opera is a Florentine Opera new production. Peter Brook’s acclaimed chamber adaptation strips the story of Carmen to its emotional core. This taut psycho-drama is great opera and dynamic theater all at once. With jealousies ignited and passions exploding, Carmen’s lust for life leads down a deadly path. You’ll hear all the famous arias and get to know our heroine in a whole new way.

The Comedy of Hamlet...kinda sorta

Join some of Milwaukee's favorite comedic talents in a re-telling of Shakespeare's classic Hamlet…kinda sorta…at the Marcus PAC, May 14-16. This comedic take on the classic story is from the same company that brought you the comedy of Romeo and Juliet…kinda sorta and the sold out Milwaukee favorite, Rudolf the Pissed-Off Reindeer.

May 29, 2020 - May 31, 2020
Macbeth

Violent, intense, and terrifying. This is grand opera at its best, with powerhouse roles and a big chorus. Verdi takes Shakespeare to an operatic level with one of the most complex relationships ever to haunt the stage. Consumed by the promise of political power, and propelled by his ambitious wife, Macbeth gets caught in a murderous web to claim the Scottish throne. But instead of great power, blind ambition leads only to madness and destruction.
